Dear A WAMC INSIDER,
You not only have my word on it, but I will post
your material and attribute it exactly as you specify, and in any manner
that you specifically instruct. I understand fully your need and
desire to protect your friends, and your and their WAMC relationships.
Further, I think that guaranteeing everyone's anonymity is the best
way to assure a continuing flow of material and information about what's
happening internally at the station.
Further, if you would like to be a regular contributor to the website
(anonymous of course), please be my guest.
For me, I prefer the role of editor (checking for punctuation, spelling,
syntax, as well as doing
layout, while editorializing as little as practical). I much
prefer reading other people's material on the site.
I think my personal opinions would get stale mighty fast were I to allow
myself to dominate the site or its content. Reading what other
listeners and contributors have to say makes it a far more interesting
website and gives it far more credibility than if I were to constantly
regurgitate my own views ad nauseum.
(Not like at WAMC, eh? I only wish the powers-that-be at
could understand this important editorial distinction in their own broadcast
So let me know what you want to do and I will be happy to oblige, and
thank you for your continuing interest and input.
Very truly yours,
Glenn M. Heller, executive director & chair
WAMC Northeast Pirate Network
